WELCOME to Nest by Tamara blog
Hi- It's Tamara. I'm happy you've stopped by, and since 2010 I've been sharing my passion for interior design, history, art, entertaining, travel & fashion. I am an interior designer, textile designer and writer living and working in New York City and East Hampton, Long Island. My musings have taken me to international design, art, antique and epicurean events and I have lots to share. I'm grateful to have been listed as the #1 top design blog, blogs to watch, top design blogs and named and awarded Rising Star of Design by the IFDA NY industry organization. Please feel free to reach out to our team for an interior design consultation or to see our collection of wallpaper and fabric sold to the designer trade at rootcellardesigns@gmail.com. Tamara

Dramatic Rooms At Holiday House NYC: Geoffrey Bradfield and Ally Coulter

There was no playing it safe this year

Holiday House 2012 NYC  brought dramatic flair:

on the main floor is an expansive room he transformed
using a dramatic black and white palette

  Geoffrey designs a line of textiles and wall coverings,

 you definitely get the feeling you've been invited to an exclusive party, a throw back to another era when entering this elegant room which is just off the entry way of the home
Father's Day is an over the top tribute to a special space just for a guy's guy. What man wouldn't love a cozy get-away where he can participate in all his decadent activities, from drinking brandy to reading and thinking about race car driving
 this is a high voltage testosterone-infused space 
finished off with a large, antique gun gracing the mantel. 
 fur throws, lavish purple fabric, and a missile sculpture all help outfit the space
 The Art Deco furniture, and a well-stocked bar finish the paneled library well.
